Surface Compatibility

DPSExtensive surface compatibility testing was performed
on a variety of materials and surface finishes.Tanks3

  • Painted metal surfaces.
  • High Gloss plastic surfaces.


A variety of motorcycle, small engine, and power equipment fuel tanks were extensively used as research specimens because of their size, hydrocarbon accumulation levels, and the high quality finishes that the manufacturers place on these components.

Large automotive and marine tanks were also evaluated, and repeatable results were obtained using the DPS process.

• Painted surfaces were not damaged by limited contact with the chemicals.
• High gloss plastic surfaces were not damaged, when the chemicals were used.
